CIS&CWS

Introduction

To better consolidate students' work-based learning experience and to enhance their professional and personal development on campus, a Task Force chaired by the Vice-President (Student Affairs) has conducted a review of the On-campus Service-learning Scheme (OSS) in October 2011 and has recommended the introduction of two new schemes, namely the Campus Internship Scheme (CIS) and the Campus Work Scheme (CWS), for implementation on 1st July 2012 to replace the OSS. The Career and Leadership Centre is responsible for implementing the Schemes through coordinated efforts with various departments involving the Human Resources Office, the Finance Office, and the recruiting units. All enquiries on the Schemes and suggestions may be forwarded directly to the Career and Leadership Centre via email at clc.careercentre@cityu.edu.hk or by fax at 3442 0219.
